BBO—RACIAL INJUSTICE-MVP PLAQUES

NEW YORK — As monuments, statues and memorials around the world come under increased scrutiny, some former Most Valuable Players in Major League Baseball are saying they’d like to see a change in future MVP plaques. The trophy is engraved with the name of Kenesaw Mountain Landis in large letters. Landis was baseball’s first commissioner and there were no Black players in the majors during his reign from 1920 until his death in 1944. His name has been on every American League and National League MVP plaque since then. Barry Larkin, Terry Pendleton and Mike Schmidt say they’d like to see it pulled off. By Ben Walker.

GLF—ON THE FRINGE-JOHNSON

It only looks as though Dustin Johnson barely has a pulse on the golf course. One moment made him a little nervous. It wasn’t the tee shot that rolled toward the railroad tracks and barely crossed the out-of-bounds line, right after he had taken a two-shot lead in the final round of the Travelers Championship. It wasn’t even the tee shot two holes later that was headed for the water until it landed softly enough to stay dry. That’s just golf. Good or bad, he moves on. What caused concern was his knee. By Doug Ferguson. SENT: About 870 words, photos.
